Established to preserve the rich heritage of ancient Greece, Acropolis Museum brings together thousands of artifacts found at the world-famous ancient citadel located on a rocky outcrop above Athens. Opened in 2009 just a short walk from this heritage-listed archaeological site, the museum exhibits nearly 4,000 objects, including items formerly held in storage or displayed by foreign museums. The collection focuses on statues from the 5th century BCE, widely regarded as the finest examples of ancient artistic achievement. The museum building, a major tourist attraction in itself, features exhibit spaces designed to give each artifact a clear historical context. Finish your visit at the second-floor restaurant, which offers panoramic views of the city's historical hills.

  • Architecturally and historically one of the best museums I have been to. A view of the Acropolis from the top floor makes is great tourist attraction for getting lovely pictures too! Price is also very forgiving. Highly recommended!
  • A very thorough museum for those who are interested in Greek mythology and art history. The place was huge with very high ceiling. It was a bit too warm for those who come from the north or cold-weather countries. They had a very complete collection of Greek mythology sculptures. The giftshop sold quite diverse collection of Greek mythology and art history books. This is a very good place to gain knowledge before you go to Acropolis.
